What can I do with a BS in chemistry?
« on: May 09, 2008, 08:04:51 PM »
i hope this is the right place to post this question

but i'm really don't know what I want to with my degree. i'll be a senior next year so i guess i really should have an idea by now, but i don't. i asked my friends and they're considering going to med, pharmacy, dentistry, grad school, etc. my gpa is below a 3.0, not too much below, but still, so obviously i'm not going to get into those programs. is there anything else that i could do? i do have some experience. i did an internship over the summer.

You can a lot with a BS in chemistry.  The low GPA may be an obstacle for getting into grad school immediately, but don't fret about it.  This is a question I ask other students all the time:  Think about the craziest most amazing and fun thing you could imagine doing with, in your case, chemistry.  Seriously, what is the coolest thing you can think of doing with the science that just makes you think "now that is freaking cool." Then go for exactly that crazy most amazing and fun thing you thought of.  I mean, maybe you think it would be donuts and beer if you could find a way to say I don't know, convert your crap into nutritionally viable and tasty food.  You know what....Nasa needs you if that's the case. Just look around at what you enjoy doing on a daily basis, then look for chemistry in that and you're set.
